European Tour Player Ryan Fox has continued his fine run of form carding an impressive 9 under par 63 to lead the Briscoes Wairakei Invitational Pro-Am by six shots.

Mark Hutson, Josh Geary and Dan Hillier are Fox’s nearest challengers following opening rounds of 3 under 69, a shot ahead of Gareth Paddison, Kieran Muir and Ben Campbell.

With the borders closed, Pacific Golf have put on this event to replace the traditional Sheraton Classic held in Fiji to provide both our Tour Professionals a chance to play, and our Amateur’s a chance to compete alongside some of New Zealand’s best golfers.

With the weather forecast looking spot on for the 2nd and 3rd Rounds, scoring could get hot following some rain late on day one softening up the new greens complexes.
